IT'S SLEEP AWARENESS WEEK

Lovely, lovely sleep. My favourite thing. What a joy to spend a week being aware of how we sleep, and focussing on how to do it better. 

In Yangon our home is right downtown on the banks of the Yangon River. Ooooh, how tranquil and exotic!! Well, exotic yes, but tranquil - sadly not. Great yawning container ships, sputtering putt-putt boats, honking trucks and bossy trains keep the soundscape lively at all times of day and night. 

So when I come in from the heat and dirt of the day, and sometimes feel very far from home, these are the things that make me feel cosy, homely, and ready to sleep:
Desmond & Dempsey Pyjamas
ONE | MY BELOVED FERN PYJAMAS FROM DESMOND & DEMPSEY

Molly and Joel, the dream team behind Desmond & Dempsey, have created pyjamas with magical powers. They're classic and exotic all at once, and make you feel like Audrey Hepburn.
Plum & Ashby Travel Candle
TWO | MY PLUM & ASHBY TRAVEL CANDLE

Not only is this the chicest candle out, with a soothing effect which makes you drowsy within seconds, but it also comes with a lid so I can pop it in my overnight bag and take it with me on my travels. Portable homeliness - the dream. 
Call Me By Your Name
THREE | CALL MY BY YOUR NAME

My new favourite book of all time, which I have now read, watched and listened to so many times that it feels like home. If you haven't read it, do so as soon as possible. And if you can't wait to read it, watch the film which came out on DVD last week.
Lotus Throw
FOUR | MY LOTUS BEDSPREAD

This is luxury in a bedspread. Handmade with love, it is heavy and huge and as close to a hug as anything non-human could be.
Nini Cushions
FIVE | MY NINI CUSHIONS

Lots of them, in a big feathery mountain to support me in my book-reading, lavender-calmed, pyjama'd sleepy heaven.
Early night for me.... night night x x x
